Card of the Day - Alexstrasza the Life-Binder

Alright today i shall review a card from the new set, Alexstraza the Life-Binder. This card seems to have a lot of potential. Assault 5 on a hero card is fairly basic, however, allies cannot be destroyed is the thing you are looking at that makes this card useful... There is only one problem that makes this card almost useless. That being by the time you are able to play her you should have won the game, no exceptions. I mean You have two options to get her out. You either have the 25 resources or you have enough allies out to reduce her cost by there combined attack, which will still make her cost around 10-12 depending on what kind of deck you are running, plus you will have enough attack on the field that you should pretty much wipe your opponent out in two turns. For a Master Hero card Alexstraza may have shiny effects but you are still MUCH better off running something such as Kel'Thuzad or Illidan if you plan on running a master hero at all. In the end I would say this card is worth buying if you plan on just having fun with the game, but if you wish to make a competetive deck I would try and stay away from her.  Tomorrow I shall look at the other much more playable Master hero of the set Ysera the Dreamer
